1. Manchester City gave a pretty big clue that they think their derby win over Manchester United was secured during the transfer window. Just look at the hoardings above. 2. I 4-1 didn't see that result coming. 3. Paolo Di Canio must be really good at projecting his voice. Not so good at keeping his [.

Ever wondered what Borussia Dortmund manager Jurgen Klopp would look like if he was killing someone? He gave us a pretty good clue during last night's Champions League defeat to Napoli. The German boss flew into a crazed rage when Gonzalo Higuain scored what proved to be the winner. After coming close to biting the [.

This poor kid didn't have a clue what was going on before yesterday's match between Sunderland and Manchester City. One minute he was posing for photos in front of his City heroes, the next he was standing alone in front of a procession of Sunderland players. That's the danger of playing zonal instead of going [.

Team GB played Brazil's London 2012 mob in a pre-Olympic jolly at the Riverside last night, winning 2-0 and putting on a dominant display of football though, sadly, the match was overshadowed by a sickening injury to Neymar on the half-hour mark, when a horrific collision with Ryan Betrand resulted in the Brazilian forward sustaining a rupturedbrokenshatteredsevered neck.

The Offside - Chelsea at related • 0 views

Our sabbatical has been lengthy. And thorough.

But we had to return today to comment (briefly) on the fact that John Terry was cleared of racially abusing Anton Ferdinand in a no-blame verdict. NOT GUILTY, ho.

I'm not going to get too far into it, but let's just say the case bordered on the farcical before and during the trial, and this is exactly what was expected.

At least Theo Walcott circus will be over by Aug. 31

It's almost not worth writing articles during the transfer window these days since you don't know who to believe unless you actually talk to the players themselves. And even some of them don't have clue what's going on. Looking over the headlines regarding Theo Walcott and his contract negotiations with Arsenal you'll see there are about two dozen different scenarios offered by various writers and newspapers.

Scoreless Arsenal still looking for clues as they draw Stoke, 0-0

He's gone, hasn't he?

Steve Bould seems to have whipped this Arsenal defense into shape. Introducing zonal marking and taking away Stoke's greatest strength, its set pieces. They were so effective that they did not concede a corner and the free kicks that Stoke took were dealt with decisively by Mertesacker and Vermaelen.

Hands up all those who breathed a huge sigh of relief at the end of the first 45 minutes of yesterday's game? Moi. I say that because I think like most I didn't have a clue what to expect. Usually, we get minor changes enabling us to have a pretty good idea of what to expect but with last season's and this window's signings everything seems to be up in the air making it very difficult to calculate what to expect.

Can Arsenal depend on Jack Wilshere and Tomas Rosicky this season?

Arsenal Insider at related • 0 views


With the start of the season quickly creeping up on the calendar and the transfer window being open until the end of August, Arsenal, like most other Premier League teams, aren't sure who will be in the line-up on opening day and who might not be with the club anymore.

One thing looks certain though, and that's that Gunners midfielders Tomas Rosicky and Jack Wilshere won't be ready to play when the season kicks off.

In any case, tonight's match is yet another chance for the Portland Timbers to turn their season around.

Ex-professional football players occupy a unique position in British society.
